Heerenveen winger Bilal Basacikoglu is not spending time thinking about speculated interest from Manchester United, but admits he would give more than a little thought to an approach from Galatasaray.

The 19-year-old has put in a number of superb performances for Heerenveen so far this season, catching the eye of a whole host of clubs.

Basacikoglu has so far scored five goals and provided four assists for his team-mates in the Eredivisie, leading to predictions of a bright future.

Asked about interest from a whole host of European clubs, including Manchester United, the youngster told the Leeuwarder Courant: "That doesn't affect me much."


But one thing that might turn Basacikoglu's head is interest from Turkish champions Galatasaray.

"If Galatasaray really come, then of course I would start thinking.

"But that is not yet on the agenda", he concluded.

Basacikoglu, whose father is Turkish, is under contract with Heerenveen until the summer of 2016.
